1888 Virginia Agricultural, Mechanical & Tobacco Exposition

Richmond, Virginia

Richmond city fathers considered Virginia to be historically the most interesting of the States of the Union, despite or possibly because it served as the capital of the Confederate States of America. Home to Washington, Jefferson, the Tylers, Madison and Monroe, the state prided itself on its claim to presidents and fathers of presidents. One so-called dollar was struck for this exposition. The details are cataloged in my 2023 book So-Called Dollars Volume I: United States Expositions. Click on the “View All” link below to see them.
